4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep black with almost no head. Aroma is really dark chocolate, coffee, some sweet cherries, pepper. Too much coffee for me. Taste is bittersweet, with much of everything, no sourness. Also remarkable is the chili-like-spicyness. Really well-rounded. Full body, heavy but not too much. Could have some more sweet chocolate but overall still beautiful.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2016 Bottle from a trade with sneakychi, many thanks! Pitch black color with dark beige head. Aroma is chili, vanilla, black chocolate, cherry, coffee. Taste is vanilla, black chocolate, chili catch, espresso. Slightly hot finish, low carbonation. Full-bodied. Complex. A true bomb. The hotness is really well-balanced, it’s got the slight tickle.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a quickly dissipating white to off white foamy head that quickly dissipated.
The aroma had the big boozy goodness of the rum up front. Delicate woody to chocolate underneath. Sly vanilla. Subtle cinnamon.
The flavor wraps all of the flavors of the aroma together. Cinnamon and vanilla bounce together in the aftertaste and departs nicely with a semi-sweet/spicy finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice sipping quality about it. Spices hit nicely, not too harsh.
Overall, loved it, but not exactly sure why I had it this time of the year. Would love to have it again but preferably in Winter.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is so good, ridiculous chocolate and vanilla, coconut, coffee, slight pepper, just ridiculously good. Appearance is black, light brown head, poured slightly thin. Taste is creamy chocolate, vanilla, coconut, rum, coffee, barrel, some booze, overall ridiculous. Mouthfeel is heavy body, very very light carbonation, chocolate vanilla coffee aftertaste with a slight heat. Overall, this one is so so good.
